pics of rust inside new oil tank less than 2 years, thoughts?
was in April, in either 2015 or 2014, I bought and replaced my 275 gallon oil tank in my garage with a new one.
It's the standard black tank, can pick them up just about anywhere including home depot & lowes, and plumbing stores in my area have a dozen or more of these stacked outside. Don't remember the make of mine, I think the sticker on it said made in Canada.
Looked inside mine and observed the following rust formations on just one side of the inside the tank.
Is this normal, typical, or signs of problems to come?
Is there any kind of preventative maintenance that can/should be done with something like this, other than a yearly inspection/poke?
I have a general 1a-25b (the small one) off the fireomatic spigot coming off the bottom of the tank, followed directly by a GarBer R2000 filter and have had zero problems with anything since I installed it, and have cleaned out the 1a-25b once after about 1-1.5 years of use and less than 1000 gallons of oil used, and I had maybe a half ounce at most of water settled at the bottom of the general 1a-25b with zero signs of anything else.
